Thrushpog

Thrushpogs were plant-animals native to the Endless Forest and Spriton Plains. They grew from the knots and burls of trees, and sported long necks and rounded stomachs. They also bore a pair of petals atop their stems which acted as ears. They lived in symbiosis with the trees they grew from, sharing nutrients and rainwater in exchange for shelter. Thruspogs were connected to each other via a system of tubers that grew throughout the trees' bark and flesh. Such Thrushpog colonies could encompass a range stretching from the borders of the Stonewood Clan to the center of Sami Thicket, reminding the Gelfling that all creatures were one, regardless of boundaries.[1]
